It doesn’t matter if you’re buying a beer of the month club for yourself or as gift, they are just plain fun. While each work a little differently, you are basically paying either a one time or monthly fee and get sent unique beers in the mail each month.
What sets these clubs apart from just buying beer locally is that you get to try brews from breweries that might not have distribution in your area. Each month you get a package and get to to experience something new.
If you know a beer lover in your life, a beer of the month club membership is the perfect gift. It’s easy to setup and they take care of everything for you. Every one wins!
The hardest part of buying a beer club membership is choosing the right one. Each is unique and offer things slightly differently.
To help you out, I’m taking on the tough task of joining multiple beer club memberships myself and will report on this page my thoughts of each along with a brief description of what they offer.
Good luck in your decision and I hope this helps you make the right choice.

The Original Craft Beer Club was the first club I started receiving beer from. All of their beers come from breweries scattered throughout the United States, and so far I haven’t received any beers that I can find locally. This is a great club for pretty much anyone who loves good craft beer.
The styles aren’t too crazy and they do include seasonals each month. I did get a bottle opener, 4 tasting glasses, and 4 bags of nuts. The bottle opener is actually one of my favorite openers I own. It’s a beast.
